Thinking about Truman 7 years after his passing. He was one of those Army buddies who I’d known since AIT. Going to different first duty assignments, we were assigned together at Kunia and again at DISAPAC as we started wrapping up our military careers. We ran around as single soldiers before both of us got married, and after we got married. And beyond. After we both retired from active duty.
I still remember we’d just moved back to Hawaii from Guam maybe 2 months, and Truman called from NC. We BS’d and he wanted me to talk to his brother about setting up a Wi-Fi network. This was I think a Tuesday. That following Saturday night he passed away. I think about him now and then, and especially when I hear from the other 4 AIT buddies of ours who keep in touch.
